Quentin Thomas Update
We spoke with Quentin Thomas, 6-3 JR PG Oakland (Calif.) Oakland Tech, last night about his recruitment. Thomas is the top PG guard prospect in the 2004 West Coast class and he figures to rank among the top couple point guards in the country. Thomas told us that he hasn't started to seriously think about any colleges and he has a long list of schools that he's considering. We asked him to name a few and he rattled off, "USC, Oregon, Arizona, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Miami...and a bunch of others." It was our impression that no real weight should be given to the inclusion, or exclusion, of any schools. Thomas told us that he hopes to cut his list to about fifteen schools in the next couple weeks. "Before my high school season begins," Thomas said. Thomas told us about some of the factors he'll consider in making his choice. "Most important will be the areas I want to major in," said Thomas. "Business as a major and maybe graphic design as a minor. The location -- hopefully someplace where I know at least one person. Weather might be an issue. And I'd love to go get a good amount of time early, but that won't be a major issue." Don't look for an early decision from Thomas. "I'm not in any rush -- there is no timeframe. Most likely not until after next summer."
